Join with us for a very special evening with Jordan B. Peterson, renowned author of the international bestseller, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, now being translated into 45 languages. A courageous and articulate champion of free speech, individual liberty, personal responsibility, civic virtue, the rule of law and the values that underpin Western Civilization, Dr. Peterson burst onto the public scene with his incisive critiques of political correctness, identity politics, moral relativism, and collectivism on the left and right.

Dr. Peterson’s work explores the modern world by uniquely combining the hard-won truths of ancient tradition with the stunning revelations of cutting-edge science. At this event, he will do so by examining how to overcome life’s biggest obstacles, discussing how best to improve oneself and society, and exploring the meaning of life. A fascinating speaker whose expertise spans the social sciences, the humanities, mythology, theology, and more, Dr. Peterson is widely recognized for his unrivaled combination of wisdom, verve, and wit. This special evening is an event not to be missed!
